IRS to Chris Tucker:

We Haven't Forgotten

Your $11.5 Mil Debt

10/15/2011 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

>Chris Tucker
The IRS hasn’t forgotten about Chris Tucker’s $11.5 million debt … TMZ has learned that Uncle Sam is still trying to collect their cash … 17 months after slapping the actor with a big, fat tax bill.

According to the L.A. County Recorder’s Office, the lien issued against Tucker back in July 2010 is still active … which means, he still owes money … which means the government can legally seize his assets.

TMZ broke the story … the IRS claims Tucker stiffed them out of income tax during multiple years … including 2001, when Tucker allegedly raked in a $20 mil payday for “Rush Hour 2.”

Still, Tucker is finally laughing at his financial troubles in a standup routine, joking last weekend, “that’s the last time I let Wesley Snipes help me out with my taxes.”

No comment from Tucker's camp.

I never understood his popularity. I found his act in Rush Hour to be nothing but a bad '70's era sitcom stereotype of the hysterical 'negro'. It was offensive and just not funny.

as far as I'm concerned they can give him a cell next to Wesley Snipes!
it's about time rich people- stars or whoever they are- pay the taxman like the rest of us or they can go to jail/federal prison for their exhorbidant outstanding debt
they lived the lavish lifestyle - so now they need to pay

He hasn't made a movie in years so he is probably really broke? People with money spend it on mansions and expensive cars..he probably spent his check on expensive toys also so it figures.
